Secrets to Taking Magical Hair Flip Photos

If you’re a woman and you have an Instagram account, there’s a good chance that your feed is full of selfies. And if it isn’t? You might need to rethink some things. It only makes sense that the selfie-loving culture has led to this new trend: hair flip photos. The idea behind them is simple – get ready for the day by taking a photo of yourself while flipping your hair over one shoulder like Kylie Jenner or Gigi Hadid (or any other celebrity who does this). Whether with friends or just on their own, these girls pose in front of mirrors with their best side showing off their everyday morning look.

Taking hair flip photos is the new trend, and it’s so easy to do. All you need is a friend to take your photo, some surface for the camera, and a phone with the ability to record video. The best part about this trend is that no one will know that you’re just faking it. Plus, if you want something really simple, all you have to do is move your head around in circles while someone takes pictures. It’ll look like we’re having fun or trying out different hairstyles. No matter what kind of selfie mood I’m in, my hair-flipping photo always comes out perfect.

Do you ever wish that your hair was always curly or straight? How about the perfect texture for a day at the beach? Well, with this easy-to-use tip, it can be. All you have to do is wet your hair and then flip it up in a towel. The water will help provide some curl and bounce while drying.

The best shutter speed for flip hair portraits

Ahhhh, flip hair. The best way to get that classic 90’s look is by flipping your hair and snapping a selfie. But what shutter speed should you use? Here are the pros and cons of each to help you decide which one will work for you.

  • Slow Shutter Speed: This usually creates blurry images, but with flip hair, it can create an excellent effect where your hair looks like silk or cotton candy.
  • Normal Shutter Speed: This is usually the default setting on most cameras, but if you’re not sure about the other options, then this might be good for you.
  • Fast Shutter Speed: If your goal is to show off some fancy flips, this would be a great option.
